Latest scientific research – Evaluation of Queensland trial by CARRS-Q
In April 2014, the Queensland government was the first Australian state to trial amended minimum overtaking distance road rules. The trial has been evaluated by an expert road safety research team, led by Prof Narelle Haworth at the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q) at Queensland University of Technology.
The evaluation was conducted after the trial had started and while the researchers acknowledge there were some challenges and limitations to the study, this is the most comprehensive evaluation of minimum overtaking distance legislation conducted in Australia.
